The San Antonio Cancer Institute (SACI) is soliciting applications requesting pilot project funds for two separate initiatives. The first initiative calls for pilot projects in cancer-related research to be funded through the SACI core grant developmental funds and an American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grant. Approximately $185,000 is available for these projects.
The initiative supports four types of projects:
The second initiative calls for proposals for cancer control initiatives to be funded through a SACI supplemental grant. Eligible applications will include one- or two-year hypothesis-driven, cancer control-related, cross-disciplinary studies in the areas of population-based cancer genetics, epidemiology, cancer survivorship, behavioral research and cancer surveillance research. Applicants must be current SACI research members or eligible candidates simultaneously applying for research membership with at least one current SACI member serving as a co-investigator. A total of $80,000 is available to fund projects of up to $40,000 a year for one- to two-year projects.
Applications will be reviewed by members of the SACI Project Review Committee and receive priority scores to determine funding awards. The deadline for proposals is Oct. 6. The earliest anticipated date of award is Jan. 1.
